About Gilbert de Kilpatrick

Little is known about Gilbert, except that he was the Lord of huge tracts of land of the name Colquhoun, in Dumbartonshire, Scotland, born around 1150 AD. (Subsequently, the family name "Kilpatrick" was changed to "Colquhoun.")

As a result of his fueding with other clans these lands were forfeited to the crown in 1220 AD and acquired by Umfridus de Kilpatrick of Colquhoun, our first direct ancestor in this line. There is relatively little known about the early Colquhouns and nothing is known of their wives until the time of Sir Robert de Colquhoun (1350-1390), who married the heiress of Luss, thus adding that title and the accompanying lands to the Colquhoun estate. Sir John (or Iain) Colquhoun (1408-1459) held the office of Governor of Dumbarton Castle and married Jean Erskine, the daughter of Lord Robert Erskine.

His grandson, also Sir John or Iain (1459-1478) succeeded him and held the positions of Comptroller of the Exchequer (1460),Sheriff of Dumbartonshire (1471) and Great Chamberlain (1474) He was killed at the siege of Dunbar. The claim made that his wife, a Boyd, was the daughter of Sir Thomas Boyd and Princess Mary of Scotland seems to be false (see notes below),however, another Boyd, Agnes (d. July 18, 1584 at Edinburgh), the daughter of Robert, the 5th Lord Boyd and his wife Mariota Colquhoun, was the descendant of this pair. (Agnes Boyd married Sir John Colquhoun XIII & XV of Luss, on Nov.15, 1564). This heritage is particularly interesting because Princess Mary's father, James II of Scotland, was the son of James I, whose marriage into the English royal house is a particularly dramatic and romantic tale: James, b. July 1394, had been sent to safety in France by his father, Robert III shortly before the later's death in 1406. The young Prince was captured by the English, however and held until1424, during which time he met and fell in love with Joan Beaufort, the granddaughter of John of Gaunt, who was the son of Edward III and Philippa of Hainault. The poem 'The Kinges Quaire' is reputed to have been written by James I about his captivity and romance with Joan.
